Brightfind loves PersoniFest.  As Personify’s first and oldest partner (too soon for a shameless plug?) we’ve attended almost all of them.  Last year we wrote about the top things to do while attending the conference.  We decided to re-create the blog for 2017 when we realized last year’s blog was spot-on, so here’s an updated version or ICYMI, a brand new one.
